Essex builders regularly undertake garage conversions in Harold Wood, and across Havering, as a cheaper and easier way to add space and value to your home, compared with other types of builds. You won’t need to resort to moving to get a house; so you’ll save on fees for stamp duty, solicitors etc. A garage conversion can also increase your home’s value.
What are you using your garage for? For most people it is usually a storage room for the stuff that we don’t ever, or barely use. If that is the case, then maybe it’s time to consider making better use of it and not only turn it into something more useful for the family, but it could also be a valuable asset.
If you own a property that shares a wall with a neighbour, this is called a Party Wall. Whether the party wall is a supporting wall, or not, any work you or your builder does to it could have an effect on the neighbouring property.
If you’re planning any building work in your property that could have structural implications on that wall, you will need to formally issue a notice to the owners of the other properties.
Homeowners looking for more space often opt for a loft conversion. By making some adjustments to the roof, they can create new rooms using the footprint of their home. This can be a great way to get additional bedrooms and a bathroom.
